Big Business and Climate Change Corporate America is divided on the issue of global warming. Apple and three big utilities -- Exelon, PNM Resources and PG&E -- have resigned from the US Chamber of Commerce because it opposes government efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. Nike, General Electric and Johnson & Johnson are still members, but have declared that the Chamber does not represent their views on climate change. Will regulations that raise costs for some create profits for others? Will shareholders pay any price for going green? Is there profit to be made from proposed laws designed to protect the environment?
